I want to just rebuild the LSD side of my diff. TII diff.

I got all the plates and clutches.I think I got the comp parts gotta check the numbers.

Would I be able to do this job at home? It shouldn't mess up my backlash if I'm putting everything back that way it is.

I'm not changing any bearings because the diff is in good condition.

Any thoughts?

I did a search and nothing came up.

And please no suggestions in replacing the unit with a used one, this is my 3 used unit and they only last like 20k miles.

I wanted to rebuild the whole thing and changing gears to 4.30 but need to rebuild my engine first. Too expensive right now for that upgrade.

Have a dial indicator handy when you rebuild it

i think its not too bad, just make sure to be careful to put the diff back in the same way it came out.

If you have comp parts expect the diff to make some clunky noises when you first run it. Its the discs holding then slipping. It will stop after a while and the right oil helps quiet it down.

Crush washer torque is very important, I think I remember that from auto class.

Maybe I'll take to the shop and spend the money on just the lsd rebuild than wasting money on a new diff because I did it wrong.

I have the clutches already since last year. Don't have a dial indicator so i guess I better just take it out to a pro.
